more flower clips (addicting!)

These flowers are so fun and quick to make, I kind of went crazy producing them. In fact, there is another stack sitting in my studio waiting for clips to be put on the back. Then I will have to photograph them and post them up. Ok, after the last group I have going, I will stop making these flowers. I mean it, I can stop whenever I want...

Dream As If You'll Live Forever (an art edit) -sold

I hung this piece at a gallery in November without the leaves. I completed it after that hanging and here it is, finally finished.

Bunny placemats

These are place mats that I made for Christmas gifts. The bunny ears are a cloth napkin that can be removed and used for meals. They were a lot of fun to make, (I especially love the carrot) and it was also fun to see the children that received them be so excited about the gift.


Twins appliqued onesies

I bought these onesies at Old Navy and appliqued onto them for my friend's twins. They turned out to be pretty cute.


Baby clothes quilt

This quilt was so much fun to make. It is a custom order quilt for my sister's friend. She gave me a bag full of her son's shirts and onesies that he has grown out of. I cut them apart and used them for the blocks of this quilt. The quilt has great texture; there are buttons, appliqued animals and even a pocket. I used classic pooh fabric for the borders and backing of the quilt. I delivered the finished quilt to my customer and her son and he wrapped himself up in it for the walk back to the car. Knowing that he was happy with my work made me feel very proud.

Baby Z in the ocean

This is a custom order quilt that I made for a friend from high school. She didn't know if she was having a boy or a girl; she just told me that she and her husband were decorating the baby's room with an ocean theme. (it turned out to be a boy, Utah!) So I made an ocean background using several batik fabrics. After the ocean was assembled, I appliqued several seahorses onto it using a bright yellow fabric, and another fabric that is kind of a watermelon color. Not quite red, but not quite pink, either. I love the way it came out and she and her husband do, too. I just hope that Utah enjoys it.

For my Grandmother

I made this table topper as a Christmas gift for my Grandmother. I visited her in Fort Worth over the New Year's weekend and gave it to her. She really likes it. It was hard to make something that was so monochromatic, but in the end I think it turned out pretty nice.


Getting better with the applique

I am getting better at the applique stitch! These clothes are so cute, I want to make more. Again, I bought these clothes at Target and added the airplane and the monogram.
My aunt's first grandson was born yesterday and she wants me to send her a blue airplane so that she can put it on a bib for him. What a copycat!
